7:17 am
you want running backs that want the ball. there is nothing wrong with that. they need to feed ryan matthews. he fits with what they are doing. i just think they need to use demarco murray differently. put him back in the i set. that pistol for formation. he is in the good going laterally. he need the ball going toward the line of scrimmage because of the big type of back he is. >> that straight ahead running straight of chip kelly a's scheming. >> then change it. >> yes. >> he adjust his passing game, you have to adjust to your talent. ryan matthews is better going laterally, he has more speed but demarco murray need to be going toward the the line of scrim age you have some thoughts about the eagles, what do you think. >> well, i cannot lion live television, i'm a new york giants fan. >> get out of here. >> i like football. i agree with what he is saying, eagles to have make
